OK, so you've captured a scene with an enormous DR* -- what medium do you intend to use to display your capture. You may be able to 'hold' both highlights and shadows but what kind of contrast can you expect from 'toes' and 'shoulders'? The only medium I know of that can give lots of contrast in both highlights and shadows is oil painting.
